John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) Interior of a Hospital Tent Watercolor on paper, 1918

Description

American painter John Singer Sargent was one of the most acclaimed artists of his time. While gathering materials in 1918 for Gassed, his monumental painting depicting wounded soldiers on a World War I battlefield, Sargent was suddenly stricken with influenza in Peronne, France. He was taken to a nearby hospital near Roisel. As he spent a week lying in hospital bed alongside wounded soldiers, Singer was inspired to paint this work.
